Bat World Sanctuary Auctioning Off Limited Edition Bookmarks Autographed by Betty White
Betty White is an avid animal welfare activist who works with a number of organizations, including the Morris Animal Foundation, Los Angeles Zoo Commission, Actors & Others for Animals, Farm Animal Reform, Friends of Animals and Bat World Sanctuary. Ms. White graciously signed ten special edition Bat World Sanctuary bookmarks to be auctioned off on eBay in order to raise funds for the sanctuary. Once they are sold, no more originals will ever be offered again.
All of us know Betty White as an Emmy Award winning comedian extraordinaire and actress, but very few people are aware of how important bats are to Betty. Lonetime Morris Animal Foundation friend and trustee, Betty White is unwavering in her quest to create a healthier tomorrow for animals. Although best known as the devious Sue Ann Nivens on the classic sitcom "Mary Tyler Moore" (1970) and the lovable Rose Nylund on "The Golden Girls" (2010), at the age of 88, she was the oldest person ever to host Saturday Night Live (2010). Despite the fact that Betty has graced our television screens and movies for decades, she has become one of the most popular stars of the new millennium and we might add, deservedly so. In a world where there are so many copies, Betty White is a true original.
See Betty's latest video, for the Orvis Cover Dog Photo Contest at the Morris Animal Foundation site.
Bat World Sanctuary is on the front line to end the abuse and destruction of bats. Each year they rescue thousands of bats who might otherwise die. Lifetime sanctuary is given to non-releasable bats, including those that are orphaned, injured, confiscated from the illegal pet trade and retired from zoos and research facilities. Bat World Sanctuary was founded in 1994 and is a 501c3 non-profit, all volunteer organization with 20 rescue centers nationwide. Bat World Sanctuary is extremely grateful to Betty White for her generosity in helping the organization raise funds for their rescue efforts. Visit us today to see how you can help!
